Linda Shawl

This shawl was first elaborated in a class of Vithard Villumsem, “Knitting with art yarn”, during Twist Fiber Festival 2013, in St. André Avellin, QC, Canada. As my homework, I finished my creation and wrote below the directions of how to use a handspun yarn to knit something “wearable”. The handspun yarn I used was made by Linda Tait, from Ragz Yarn, who gently gave me a skein for this class. I hope you liked 🙂 <3 <3 <3 What I like the most about art yarn:...

A autora conta que o xale foi criado originalmente como um presente para consolar uma amiga e nos meses de outubro ela destina o dinheiro arrecadado  com a venda da receita para instituições de caridade que dão apoio a famílias que sofrem com a perda de seus filhos.
